Women in drinks celebrates at the 2017 Australian drinks Awards

Women in drinks celebrates at the 2017 Australian drinks Awards

Women in drinks proudly raised more than $10,000 for ANZGOG's Save The Box campaign at the 2017 Australian drinks Awards last week.

Chair Jennifer Collins and councillors Sally Byrne, Lucy Nandi and Angela Burgum all attended the night. 

ANZGOG is WID's official charity partner for 2017-19. ANZGOG is the national peak organisation for gynaecological cancer clinical trials in Australia and New Zealand. 

Save The Box is an Australian initiative from ANZGOG to raise much needed funds and awareness for research into gynaecological cancers.

Each table at the Australian drinks Awards, held at the ICC Sydney, had a Save The Box donation container on it, allowing guests to contribute to this important charity initiative. 

Collins and Byrne wore Save The Box T-shirts to the Awards night to promote the charity initiative.

"I'm thrilled that we are supporting ANZGOG as part of this years drinks association awards this year," said Collins. "Our goal at Women in Drinks is to raise $50,000 by the end of 2019 to support this fantastic cause.

"I was blown away by the support shown by the Australian drinks industry. We raised $10,900, which could literally save the lives of seven women - every $1500 pays for a woman with a gynae cancer to go on a clinical trial for a year."

IRi, Accolade Wines and NCI all donated $1500 each towards a clinical trial, while the rest came from individual donations at tables. 

Thank you to everyone for your generosity.
